Driverset partitioning and replication

Forgive me if this is a dumb question but does the server or servers running the idm drivers and engine need any other part of the eDirectory database other than the driverset partition.

e.g. does it need a replica of the partition holding the user OU or will it work without it.

IDM needs all objects it shall read/write/sync to be on local replicas with the
appropriate access rights granted to the drivers (via security equals).
Usually we'll place r/w or master replicas on an IDM server and grant IDM full
access to user data. You can of course grant each driver just enough rights to
it's job an nothing more, but that's not done very often in real life.

Re: Driverset partitioning and replication

Thanks very much for the quick reply. It's funny buy in working with IDM since 2003 I can't remember whether I'd seen the situation I outlined. So I thought I throw it out there.
